The Oklahoma Department of Career and Technical Education helps both adults and youth get the right skills for tomorrow’s jobs. As part of this effort, the agency has embraced the States’ Career Clusters model in order to
- Give students relevant, valuable, transferable skills for high-demand, high-wage jobs
- Encourage students to follow career pathways that lead them from entry-level to long-term jobs
- Align curricula and student experiences with the demands of real-world careers
- Unite different education and training systems under a single vision
To inform students and educators about the actual job outlook for various career clusters and pathways, Oklahoma CareerTech uses EMSI’s Strategic Advantage, which provides the current jobs, projections, and wage information for career clusters, pathways, and individual occupations — in any local area or the entire state — within minutes.
